    It's a shame. This was posted a few days ago and I commented there that I can't help but wonder if it was part of some protest, some anti-meat extremist of some sort, becasue who could possibly steal 20 briskets with the intention to use them in any proper way?

      Well, they’re obviously rookies. Either rustle a steer (I know them’re fightin’ words in Texas) or swipe the finished brisket, not something half-baked.

      WayneT Right, that's what I was implying- who takes 20 half-cooked briskets with any intent to use them properly?
